Dear Esteemed Nominees, Solo Exhibition Members, and Guests,

This week, with the 4th Juried Invitational Art Exhibition, presented by the Solo Exhibition group of RedBubble, we celebrate fifty-six artists and fifty-eight works in the digital, traditional, and photographic arts.

A panel of 3 Nominators was challenged to search the 35,000-image gallery, and from that invite select works for exhibition. Nominators were chosen, based on their considerable expertise in one of the three categories.

There are 25 Traditional, 21 Photographic, and 12 Digital works in the show, representing 56 artists. Two artists each have two works exhibited, having been invited by two different nominators.

Judges will award 1st – 3rd places in each of Digital, Traditional, and Photographic Arts. The work with the highest score will be awarded Best in Show, besides a category first place. Judges will also make special merit awards.

The exhibit is open to comments! The show runs June 28th through July 4th, 2010. Awards Day is on Wednesday, June 30th, around noon, New York time (see world clock link, below).

Congratulations to all! And thank you for coming to the exhibition and supporting these wonderful artists.

Each month, all of the members of the Solo Exhibition group have the opportunity for one or more of their works to be selected for a SoJie (Solo’s Juried Invitational Exhibition). To qualify, a member has to have joined the group at least in the calendar month prior to the current show.

….. when the poppies dried and baked under the hot sun, the warm wind gently blowing through the slender stalks, desicating the heads in the paddock.
I love winter and the change of seasons, but I always get nostalgic for lazy summer days this time of year.

My dog loves car rides! Don’t open the car door when she is around unless you were meaning to go for a ride. She gets so excited when she has her head out the window . I check her teeth for bugs when we get home.
P.S. I was not driving….

Photograph was taken by holding camera at water level with forced flash. The rainbow trout in the photo is attempting to feed on the eggs of spawning salmon. The salmon are protecting their spawning beds and chasing the rainbow trout. Sometimes (totally unpredictable when or where) the trout, salmon, or both will become airborne. I figure that I have to take 100’s of photos to get one that is of interest (fish in view and in focus). Condensation due to cold and humid air temperature coupled with the considerable heat generated within the camera by taking so many photos in such a short time is a problem causing damage to the camera.

Rocquaine Belles
by Gordon Smillie

Acrylic Paint on 30"x 20" canvas board

Taken from a photograph of my wife and her fellow beach lovers ‘starting’ early at the Rocquaine Regatta.
Even though the painting is an attempt at surrealism and the girls in real life are not quite as voluptuous as these lovely ladies. I placed the balloons in front of their faces in order to further mask their identity. After much embarassed laugher and comments, “I don’t look like that”
The girls one by one came up to me and wanted to know which one represented them?
My answer (with a grin) you decide.

This one I started with watercolour pencil on paper(42/60cm) and finished it with acrylic.

My art is figurative, invoked by a memory impression, observation, or sudden insight into human character. I’m inspired by the beauty I see in a subject!

Two chickens out for an afternoon stroll in winter, near Kelso, Borders. They were starting out from the farm just behind me. Where were they going? The other side of the road or the end of it? This was one of my first (if not the first) attempt at selective colouring.

self with past lives
by Cary McAulay

oil on canvas
46cm x 61cm

from a dream were I was floating in the void and my past lives spiraled up to join me. a union of selves.
when I painted this, I was in a place very similar to the dark night of the soul..(I was at the time battling painters block! )…I was a long way physically from anyone…in my studio at night on a tropical island….but I was seeking the true me….(thats a long road!) I first painted just my face in gold on black…while looking in a mirror – painting by candlelight…my companions that night were moths and barking geckos! Painting my self like this was hugely draining (when normally it wouldn’t be) so draining in fact that I feel asleep at the easel…! I had a dream then about me painting all of the faces of past lives or ancestors or….
anyway I awoke and I found that I had not painted these faces in my self portrait at all ! So I took this as a sign! I then painted in the faces as I had dreamed! with that I broke the spell of painters block that had crippled me for weeks! I have not had painters block since….something helped me that night and for that I am grateful! there is so much more to us all than our outer shells!

Arisiag is a small village in a remote part of the West coast of Scotland. I’ve been visiting it (infrequently) for over twenty years to marvel at the sunsets there. This painting of it is the one I was most pleased with out of all the work I produced last year.

‘Hebden: Fields and Fell’
by Martin Williamson

Medium: Acrylic on canvas
Size: 70cm square

Painted after a day spent walking in the Yorkshire Dales. I stood on the top of a style over a drystone wall and made some preliminary sketches. A strong wind was blowing and I felt slightly dizzy stood precariously on top of the wall! I wanted to convey the same feeling in my painting.

Taken to celebrate Australia Day, the song behind the image the unofficial Australian anthem sung round many a campfire “Waltzing Matilda”. This was my first white knuckle ride in photoshop! The response to this image has instilled so much confidence in me, my art. It will always be very special to me.

Jamie, a very interesting young man and the son of my great friend, is kind, thoughtful and unassuming. Some of the best qualities, I believe, that can be found in a person.

“Reflections on The Beck, Staithes

by Graham Clark":

Original Size: 41cm H x 30cm W
Winsor & Newton on 640gsm Arches Rough

Staithes is a small fishing village near Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast of England, this view is against the light looking inland, The Beck leads to the harbour and out to sea in the opposite direction. Watercolour in its purest use is an unforgiving medium and this particular subject posed many challenges, I wanted to capture the warmth of the light on this hot summers day and the reflective light that bounced off of all surfaces, a particular challenge was the reflections upon and translucency of the water.

Green Vine Snake
by Amrita Neelakantan

CAMERA: Samsung Digimax A7 (point and shoot) on macro mode;
hand-held and yes that is my other hand! :)

This is an Ecuadorean green vine snake – Oxybelis brevirostris, found during a reptile and amphibian research survey Buenaventura Reserve in Southern Ecuador.

Like most vine snakes they are extremely fast and flexible, easily doubling up on themselves. This photo was taken just after measuring it and just before it was released back into the wild.

Caught the essence of this amazing snake – so unafraid!
